 Thanks for the bug report, prmr.  I'm sorry that it fell by the wayside
 for four months -- I don't know if I ever noticed this ticket before now.
 I'm changing the title to reflect what I think is the issue here -- that
 the error message when there is no alias registered for 'tahoe' should be
 more helpful and explain that the {{{tahoe stats}}} command expects either
 a dircap or an alias on the command-line, or else for there to be a dircap
 registered under the default 'tahoe' alias in the aliases file.

 I'm also marking this ticket as "easy" -- a young hacker who wants to get
 into Tahoe-LAFS hacking should be able to fix this ticket easily enough
 even if they aren't familiar with the codebase.
